London – Codex today announced an expansion of its product range with the Codex Production Server and Backbone.
The Codex Backbone is a hybrid system with productions taking advantage of local appliances – Codex Production Server – along with the distributed hardware of the Cloud through the Codex Backbone. Based on the proven technology of the Codex Vault, the Codex Production Server is a repository for all digital files and metadata generated during principal photography.
Codex has sought input from key players in the visual effects industry, including visual effects producer Ron Ames, during the initial development. “I am very excited to see the new tools coming from Codex,” says Ames. “It makes perfect sense from capture to archive with Codex systems. The new digital asset management system will extend the Codex presence from on-set through post. Continuing the information flow in one unified system is the innovation I have been waiting for.”
